Second Survey Away!

The difference between BERLIN and HONG KONG was less than 1%!!! 

So. . . IT'S A RUN-OFF!!! 

A run-off survey was just sent to backers. We'll announce the results Monday, May 21st.

If you're a backer, remember to check your email's spam folder!

Have fun!

      I received no survey.... ah well as long as the game is finished when I get it ;p

    2. Creator Harebrained Schemes LLC on May 22, 2012

      The winning second city will be announced at 10:30 PST!

    3. Creator Chris Decker on May 21, 2012

      Yeah, I never received the second survey email either, and I also didn't use Facebook to log into anything.

    4. Creator Harebrained Schemes LLC on May 21, 2012

      Hey everyone - sorry we are running a bit behind on getting the Second City Announcement posted. We will have it up today/tonight.

      Also Mitch wanted me to let you all know he's been receiving all your emails and other requests and will get to them as soon as he can.

      "For non-facebookers private message via forum is possible?"


    6. Creator MEL on May 21, 2012

      Didn't get the 2nd survey, and I don't use FB to log on to anything...

      Then I guess I caught the last train, because I once again forgot to check my spam folder - until today, that is. Luckily, the time difference works in my favour this time (living in Europe), so Berlin got my vote ... again :) I'd be happy with either choice, though, even if Hong Kong indeed sounds a little bit too mystical.

      I'm still in favour of a city editor, though, as I commented back when the fund-raising campaign (can you use that term for Kickstarter, by the way?) wasn't over yet. Harebrained Schemes should consider this as an expansion, and then you will have whatever you want. Indeed, there will be overlaps in the beginning, but the community will sort out the best projects. In fact, if there is enough money, HS could make it a competition, and include the best player-made cities as an expansion. It's worth thinking about, this will really engage the community, and secure longevity for the game.

    9. Creator Nate Thompson on May 21, 2012

      doh...didn't get the mail either. :( Let's go Hong Kong!

    10. Creator Chris "Inso" Fis on May 21, 2012

      Mike Mulvihill said at the forums that the new vote ends Monday at 12:00am PST

    11. Creator Faark on May 21, 2012

      Its may 21! ... can't wait for the results anymore :/

    12. Creator Matthew Ardill on May 21, 2012

      Didn't get the e-mail either I'm happy with either choice but am hoping for Hong Kong (it's how I voted last time around.)

    13. Creator Teppo Koivukangas on May 20, 2012

      I never got any emails. Spam or non-spam folders.

    14. Creator Christian Renicke on May 20, 2012

      OK, found the mail in the gmail Spam-folder, which is not directly shown in outlook, so I fogot to look it up and only looked into Junkmail folder.

      So, I'd be happy with either city, but voted for berlin

    15. Creator Wazzelbe on May 20, 2012

      Yeah, I guess Chicago would lose that race. Weren't we infested with bug spirits and nuked at some point? At least we're not Cleveland.

    16. Creator Stuart Connolly on May 20, 2012

      Both cities sound good to me, The main reason I'm picking Hong Kong though is because of the mix of old with the new plus the resources at your disposal are far larger than that in Berlin, both for physical supplies, Software supplies, and Magic supplies. A perfect den for Data Handlers, Black market goods, smuggling, trafficking, and convoluted stories. Berlin on the other hand while it's got perhaps a fifth of the supplies as Hong Kong, has potential for more action, danger, and underhanded dealings. Either way I'm happy with the final out come.

    17. Creator Santo (deleted) on May 19, 2012

      Waiting for survey!

    18. Creator Roland Austinat on May 19, 2012

      Let's hope I and many other backers do get the second survey before Monday 21st.

    19. Creator RC on May 19, 2012

      Hoi chummers! If you haven't received the first survey, or if you do not receive the 2nd survey by later tonight (Saturday May 19th in the USA) AND for or more info on the survey itself READ HERE: ^_^

    20. Creator Céline .S. Sauvé on May 19, 2012

      Second round vote remained the same: I want the Hong Honk connection to Dragons, please :p

    21. Creator Erik H on May 19, 2012

      I went with Berlin, but either way I'm gonna be happy. Both citys sound great!
      I can't wait to hear the result of the survey...

    22. Creator Sridat on May 19, 2012

      I have not recieved the survey

    23. Creator Navagon on May 19, 2012

      I'd love to see what you could make of Hong Kong.

    24. Creator Cassandra S on May 19, 2012

      Hong Kooong.

    25. Creator Tobi (Crusader Kickstarter pls!!) on May 19, 2012

      Berlin, Berlin, wir fahren nach Berlin!! ;)

    26. Creator Bradson Goldie on May 18, 2012

      Went with Berlin this time. Little sad that there won't be more of the Archology to explore. That's pretty much my favorite module of all time. Hong Kong just doesn't convey the gritty tech feel that I associate with Shadowrun. Too mystical for my tastes (Even if this is the Sixth World).

    27. Creator Mark Humphreys on May 18, 2012

      Gmail caught the second survey as spam. Marked it as not spam. Anyone else missing theirs might want to check and do the same.

    28. Creator David Gardner on May 18, 2012

      hehe well I voted Berlin though I have to say I'm a little disappointed, I was looking forward the the Euro players bringing us stuff that had to do with Berlin through the game editor I mean it makes sense that the people that know the place would be able to present the best material, with there thoughts and influences. Instead there was mass complaining about "to much U.S." to a U.S. company. Makes me think that if they ever make a new Gothic game I will have to gripe about how it should be placed in the Seattle area :P

    29. Creator Nathan Crooks on May 18, 2012

      Hong kong lots of neon scenery for the win

    30. Creator Alex Hogan on May 18, 2012


    31. Creator Sérgio Schüler on May 18, 2012

      Berlin is the most awesome European city for Shadowrun (well, for a lot of stuff too!)

    32. Creator Drakodar on May 18, 2012

      found mine in the spam folder..


    33. Creator CrazedHatter - OO's Lunatic in a Hat on May 18, 2012

      Berlin hasn't been in a game that I can think of, which is why I'm definitely rallying for it. Crossing my fingers!

    34. Creator willie on May 18, 2012

      i have twice voted for Hong Kong!

    35. Creator RerednaW on May 18, 2012

      nvm, found it

    36. Creator RerednaW on May 18, 2012

      I didn't receive the second survey email too, though an email with the first survey got through without any problems

    37. Creator Johannes Horak on May 18, 2012

      Greg, the title of my mail was "It's a Run-Off!" and the link to was in the third paragraph.

    38. Creator Greg Howe on May 18, 2012

      I got the email saying there is a second survey but not the actual survey with nothing in the spam folder

    39. Creator Georg Mir on May 18, 2012

      Nevermind, I didn't check my spam folder, and there I found it ;) thanks!

      Berlin it is!

    40. Creator Georg Mir on May 18, 2012

      I haven't received the survey… just this notification.

    41. Creator Johannes Horak on May 18, 2012

      Finally got this one late evening yesterday from via

      Berlin, Berlin, wir fahren nach Berlin ;-)

    42. Creator Dan Masters on May 18, 2012

      Got the first survey, didn't get this one. :(

    43. Creator Michael Kerney on May 18, 2012

      Got the second one, straight to inbox today.

      No idea where that first one went.

    44. Creator George Dodge on May 17, 2012

      I hope, man. A lot of those city options sounded really freakin' cool, so I for one am hoping for some DLC cities in the future. I was really torn in my vote since Berlin, Hong Kong, and London all really appealed to me. Expanded Seattle sounded really great, too (just maybe without so much emphasis on Renraku), but I want distinctly different flavor in the second city, ya know?

      So here's hoping this game is a runaway success and they make a DLC [Runner-Up City Here] and maybe follow it up with another DLC city after that. (And uhh.. maybe another?)

      I'm talking about a definitive Shadowrun vidja game experience, nawmean?

    45. Creator Horst Klinkenborg on May 17, 2012

      Help! I never received the first survey and so far haven't received the second. And yes, it is not in my spam folder. Any ideas?

    46. Creator Cody Markle on May 17, 2012

      Expansions, anyone?

    47. Creator Dustin_00 on May 17, 2012

      After reading the descriptions of the 2 choices, I'm just paralyzed. They both sound awesome and like they both deserve to be their own games.
